Dear Interested Sponsor,
Every two years, the five quilt guilds in Broward County, Florida, join to present Broward Quilt Expo (BQE). Our next show will take place March 14 through March 16, 2013, at the War Memorial Auditorium in sunny Fort Lauderdale.
Quilters enter their quilts to compete for cash prizes in various categories:
• Pieced • Mixed Techniques • Miniatures • Computer-Aided
• Appliqué • Innovative Design • Challenge Machine Embroidered
BQE hires accredited judges who determine which quilts receive First, Second and Third places in each category, and Honorable Mentions at their discretion. And, they choose Best of Show and three Special Merit categories for awards.
- Each quilt category $300 (First $150, Second $100, Third $50)
- Best of Show $300
- Special Merit in Hand Quilting $100
- Special Merit in Machine Quilting $100
- Special Merit for Innovative Use of Color $100
- Viewer’s Choice receives a gift basket

- Your name on signage near the quilt display area along with space for a stack of your business cards.
- Your name on the “Sponsors” page in the show book.
- Your name at the top of the list of quilts in your sponsored category in the BQE Show Book.
Please say “Yes!”. You will be helping your community, spreading your goodwill, and best of all, marketing your organization to a wide audience that does much more than quilt. Please use the online form to reserve your sponsorship of a category.
